WSOPC Returns to Palm Beach Kennel Club Nov. 10
For the sixth consecutive year, the WSOP Circuit will call Palm Beach Kennel Club home.
The circuit will kick off Nov. 10 through Nov. 21 at the Palm Beach Kennel Club in West Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach Kennel Club also hosted WSOPC events back in February 2016, making them one of only a few two-time stops on the circuit.
In September, 2015, WSOP Main Event runner-up, Joshua Beckley, won the $365 buy-in Monster Stack tournament and a gold ring in the opening event at PBKC.
Beckley joins a long list of poker pros who have played circuit events at PBKC including Jerry Yang, Greg Raymer, Lee Childs, Chad Brown, Harrison Gimbel and more.
“We’re thrilled to be hosting the World Series of Poker Circuit event kicking off our season here at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. We look forward to seeing larger fields in all our events due to our favorable event dates,” said Noah Carbone, card room director. "The tournaments have brought people to PBKC from all over the country that hadn’t experienced this facility before, and many were first-time visitors to beautiful Palm Beach County.”
Players can enjoy cash game promotions, live and simulcast racing and other poker games at this location.
The Palm Beach Kennel Club was the first non-casino to earn the right to offer WSOP Circuit events and the only stop in the state of Florida beginning in February 2011.
Since 2011, the Kennel Club has been one of the most successful WSOP Circuit stops. Altogether, 35,663 players have participated in the events and winnings have exceeded $18.2 million.
The 12 Rings in 12 Days begins with a $365 buy-in NL Hold’em Monster Stack on Nov. 10 and the fan favorite $365 NL Hold’em Re-Entry event Nov. 11-12. New this year is a $580 NL Hold’em Double Stack event Nov. 16 and the $1,675 Main Event Nov. 19.
Each WSOP Circuit stop Main Event winner will receive automatic entry into the WSOP Circuit Global Casino Championship. Automatic bids will also go to the Casino Champion at each participating venue. A Casino Champion is defined as the player at each stop who accumulates the most points throughout the 12-event gold ring schedule.
